Mitchel Cohen interviews former Black Panther Party activist Ashanti Alston (August 2007). Ashanti was a political prisoner for 14 years. He is the Co-Chair of the Jericho Movement, and a member of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement. Ashanti vividly describes a brazen attempt to free political prisoners from the Tombs in New York City. Ashanti, who describes himself as an anarchist and prison abolitionist, explains why revolutionaries need to be feminists, nationalists need to also be class conscious, and examines the psychological pressures on revolutionaries that cause them to sometimes reproduce capitalist conditions and conditioning even as we're fighting to change them.
